Viveca Jensen is an accomplished dancer, Pilates instructor, bodybuilder, aerobics instructor and trained boxer, experiences that are evident in her unique approach to Pilates, or what her faithful clients have come to know as "The Swedish Powerhouse Workout.”
Born and raised in health-minded Sweden, Viveca's interest in body sculpting lead to her placing 3rd in the Swedish Body Building Championship. Her confidence buoyed, she decided to pursue her first love of dance, and was soon admitted to the internationally renowned Stockholm Ballet Academy. There she completed a rigorous 3-year-program with extensive instruction by Prima Ballerinas and Ballet Masters in all aspects of traditional dance, jazz and the demanding Martha Graham method. After performing in Stockholm's professional theater community for three seasons, she came to Los Angeles to study under the tutelage of Billy Goodson and eventually toured worldwide as a professional dancer appearing in music videos and films.
In 1997 an injury cut her career short. On her road to recovery, she discovered an unknown talent as a motivator, becoming a popular aerobics instructor for World Gym. But it was a chance introduction to Pilates in which she found her true calling. She received her international Pilates certification under Master Pilates Instructor Ivon Dahl and is now a successful owner of her own Pilates studio in Burbank, California, where she works as a personal trainer to a few Hollywood celebrities including Hilary Duff, Actress/Singer, Alexis Bledel, Actress, Melissa McCarthy, Actress/Comedian, and Amanda Bynes, Actress. Viveca has been mentioned in several magazines including Shape, OK and US Weekly. Her pilates studio was also featured on Good Day LA Fox 11 news.
Building on the fundamentals of Pilates, Viveca has creatively incorporated her life experiences into a style that is all her own. Combining a dancer's eye, an aerobics instructor's enthusiasm, a body-builder's determination and a trained boxer, her private lessons are distinguished by a genuine passion for helping clients break through personal barriers to achieve life-long health.
After seven years of a successful business Viveca has decided to take her business to the next level and has created the next fitness craze titled Piloxing™, a creative mix between Pilates and boxing geared towards women, with a mental and physical goal of attaining a "Sleek, Sexy and Powerful" self-image. Viveca has created a unique workout incorporating key elements of both disciplines and is in the process of releasing her first Piloxing™ workout video.
